Earth Day

Aloha Gaia!

I love you!!

 

 

 

 

Happy Earth Day, everyone!

Do something nice for Planet Earth today, will you. It’s a very special place that could use some TLC (that’s tender loving care, for those of you who may have forgotten). So go sprinkle some of that love dust you carry deep within. Water your garden of life, and of the earth. Spread a few seeds of love. And if it feels right, give thanks for the ability to live in such an exquisitely beautiful world.

BEFORE WE KNOW…

As the sun begins its shine upon the morning,
Sending flecks of gold light along its path,
I find myself grateful.

Grateful for the budding warmth.
Grateful for the birdsong building.
Grateful for this garden of life,
You and I call – home.

A slow-turning globe of endless beauty.
A world that dazzles with its diversity
And humbles with its call to greatness.

Yes, things sometimes fall away.
They can crumble and burn unexpectedly
Or ebb and tide when least desired.

Tears fall then. Hearts crack open.
And when they do, before we know,
Before we understand,
New life has begun.

Rebirth
A new dawn
And the garden, more abundant than before

Our garden –

                A garden of Love.

Happy Yuletide Season

Many warm wishes for a happy Yuletide Season are coming your way.

Whatever way you choose to celebrate this time, may it be filled with love … for this is a time traditionally where love and light are meant to flourish … where moments of loving kindness are meant to be shared … and where reverence and joy are meant to abound – for all life and all peoples.

It is a time of giving … and it is a time of love.

So get out there and celebrate. Sip the good sup of Christmas cheer. Enjoy that delicious meal with friends or family. Give gratitude for what you have, large or small. If you’re anywhere in the North, get out that shovel and do yourself and your neighbor a good turn, for the white stuff seems to be everywhere at the moment.

And remember – the Love that is Eternal and lives deep within us all knows no bounds. In it, we all prosper.

 

MERRY CHRISTMAS TO YOU ALL!

On December 31st, a door closes…

Recently I sent an email out to some who are my mailing list. Though I’ve been mentioning it here for awhile, it feels important to share the mailing with you – in case you missed the message(s)  – in case you want to order – but especially,  to say thank you.

To Friends & Clients:

On December 31st, 2017, a door closes – a door that opened over twenty-five years ago when I first started doing sacred geometry templates for people – Star Gates, they were called then. It has been a wonderful journey. A journey filled to overflowing with powerful energies and beautiful people who came to me with special dreams and visions ready to birth into being. Whether the gates they commissioned were for personal evolution or for their business or healing center – whether they were Master Gates (the big all-encompassing ones) or Logos (more petite yet potent) to represent a business in a geometrical way – all were portals of possibility that set the field for multidimensional evolution and facilitated the bringing into manifestation their life’s purpose and/or fondest dreams. Each was created via the often complex configurations we call, Sacred Geometry.

It has been an honour.D

If you are one of those who commissioned templates from me – thank you, thank you, thank you. May your dreams continue to blossom and your days be ever blessed.

For those of you who are perhaps pondering whether to order, clearly now is the time for there will be no new orders taken after December 31st. That date is firm.  If you would like more information regarding Personal Commissioned Templates or Logos, you are welcome to email me. Please do so quickly for time is running short.

Universal Templates (each with its own theme or focus) will still be created from time to time and be available to purchase (a few are available even now), but these are universal in nature and so connect to all, very different from having one that is specifically for you.

Thank you again for being a part of this Star Gate journey. Thank you for being the shining light that you are, and thank you for helping to bring joy into our troubled world.

Gateway to the Heart

 

In a few days, I’ll move this over to the WHAT’S NEW section so people can view it and so it doesn’t get lost in other postings. If you want a commissioned template, don’t hesitate. Leave a message below or email. Thank you.

 

Happy Thanksgiving

autumn leavesIt is Thanksgiving Weekend here in the Great Not-White-Yet North – traditionally a time of gratitude for all that you have been blessed to receive during the past year, and a prayer of thanks for all you hope to receive in the year to come.

Here it is also Autumn – a time when the leaves turn many colors, and at their perfect time, carpet the ground below. They dance midst the winds with a kind of reckless abandon as though they know their time is running short. I find myself incredibly grateful to watch them on this sunny day. I have always loved the dance of leaves.

I am grateful also for you, wherever you are – friends and strangers – those who click ‘like’ here and those who choose to ‘follow’. Thank you for dipping into the well that is 22shangrila and thank you for hanging around. Whether we have met or not, you make everything a bit brighter.

We live in an exquisitely beautiful world. Not always easy to remember in the midst of chaos, I know. So thank you for noticing its beauty, for taking the time to breathe it in, and for honoring it in your lives. For that, and for all you dare to do that is full of love, I am most grateful.

To you all, and to this very special planet which we all call home – THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!

May your days be ever blessed with love.

Tempests and The North

     by: Aliana Alani ©2017brewing-storm-with-lightening-and-tree

 

Tempests, when they brew, have a tendency to swirl and spit, which can sometimes fly, the spit that is, and sometimes far. When tempest spit lands, at this point being a rather toxic substance, it can oft times burn. It also has a nasty habit of starting little tempests of its own.

Tempests like to gather momentum, pulling from the energy around them. It matters not what devastation is left behind. A tempest simply wants and so must have. It likes to grow. It’s in its nature. Tempests, it is worth noting, are generally not there for happy endings.

So here we are. standing midst a developing world of brewing tempests – some in their oh-so-tiny phase, others gathering lightening-speed momentum. One only has to glance south to recognize this. Given the instant access of social media and online news (some true, some not) that can inundate one before realizing it with an unexpected tempest fury, it is perhaps important to take a deep breath, stop, and remember what truly matters in our lives, who we are as individuals (and as a country), and where we choose to place our focus and actions – ideally, one hopes, for the betterment of all.

That thought brings me to The North.

Though some might say otherwise, ours is not a perfect land. Resplendent in natural beauty, our choices have not always been wise. There is fallow ground crying for seeds of caring to be sown. Areas needing nurturing more than others.  And there are wounds still to be healed. Gratitude to be offered. And forgiveness to be given. Like all people and places in this world, here too love is needed.maple leaf

Still, we carry within a kindness, a genuine decency and caring that for whatever reason seems to waft strongly through the air and song lines of this place we call, CANADA. It is a gift given to us by all that is sacred in this land. It burns unconditionally, like a small flame, calling. And it is possible that because of it, we who live here have an ongoing opportunity, perhaps even an obligation, to share this caring through acts of kindness and compassion with each other, and with this world.

Never has such kindness been needed more than now.

With that in mind, let us not import a negative eye, no matter where it comes from.  Let us instead support a positive vision. Let us not adopt the ranting and raving of others. Let us speak in tones of genuine caring and compassion. Let us, with our words and thoughts and deeds, empower, inspire, and uplift. Let each of us, and hence this country, be the constant calm in the middle of the storm.

I believe that areas of this planet carry within qualities and keys that when recognized, honoured, and truly embodied, support the blossoming and prospering of our world into its true essence and story. When that happens, and it will, we will know without question the amazing garden of love and beauty we all live in. We will know it for we will finally be living it at that level of being ourselves.

If our key here in The North, in Canada, is one of kindness and caring, let us dare to live its song fully, let us courageously walk the gentle rhythm of its melody day by day – for the sheer honour of doing so, and for the pure joy of being one with it. Let us humbly and gratefully be the loving calm within the storm.

Waves of Love & Gratitude…

single-red-rose-3TODAY IS SUNDAY – our LET’S MAKE SUNDAY A DAY OF LOVE day. Whether we share that love with those close to our hearts, or with casual friends or strangers through kindness and compassion, it is a day where we choose to allow Love to be the guiding light within out lives.

In a world currently up to its proverbial rafters in drama, let alone the real pain and suffering so many are going through, Love is needed more than ever. To see the other through the eyes of Love is to give our hearts a chance to open to the world as it is meant to be. It is an opportunity to offer the one gift you can truly give that can know no bounds – the Love That Passeth All Understanding. Touch that within yourself, allow it to flow forth unconditionally, and you will have found the door to Home.

Here in the Great White North  – not so white yet but large and definitely North – it is also THANKSGIVING WEEKEND – a time of gratitude when we acknowledge, appreciate, and give thanks for all that has been given to us. We give thanks for the kindnesses that have been offered, for the food on our tables, the friendships that prosper, and the blessings that have been given. And for the opportunity each day provides for us to share our gifts and our love with the world.

And so I thank you, each and everyone of you, wherever you may be, for your courage and willingness to step beyond the norm, to share your kindness with others, your laughter, your joy, your smile;  to dare to love, and in loving, nourish your visions of a world of harmony, balance, and yes, even peace – so that one day, hopefully very soon, those visions will have become our reality.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO YOU ALL!

Remember

Love is the answer.

Always has been.         Always will be.
